We are under a winter weather advisory until 6 pm tonight. Freezing temps and blowing snow are making travel difficult. Most all side roads in town are extremely slick and hazardous. If you do not have to get out for work today PLEASE STAY HOME. Schools and many businesses are closed for the holiday so we ask that people stay home so the road crews can work clearing roads. Traveling in inclement weather puts you, your family and first responders at risk. Use caution, slow down and know your route. Temperatures are expected to drop to near Zero tonight with negative wind chills. Please bundle up and take extra layers if you MUST be out, otherwise stay indoors.

Roadways are very slick and hazardous. City crews have been out since early morning. Please do not be out unless you have to be. Use caution and leave in plenty of time.
